The Centofante 3 has a thin profiled, lightweight FRN handle. Two channels are furrowed out of the handle for better grip and Palladium silver Spyderco bug is inlayed into its surface. For added security and convenience the back lock is positioned midway on the spine and David Boye Dent is cut from the locking lever. The VG-10 blade has both a hollow grind and swedge grind with non sharpened spine serrations (jimping) to hold the thumb steady when cutting. A black steel pocket clip positions for tip up and down, right hand carry.
VG-10 has Carbon (C) content between 0.95-1.05, Chromium (Cr) content between 13.0-15.0, Molybdenum (Mo) content between 0.2-0.4, and contains less than 0.25 of Nickel (Ni). During forging, Mo and Cr forms hard double carbide bonds which help improve the abrasion and corrosion resistance of the steel. The ground surface of the blade is concave and used to create a fine cutting edge. A nylon polymer mixed with glass fiber that is then injected into a mold for making lightweight knife handles.

This often overlooked sleeper in the Spyderco line makes a great lightweight EDC. Consider it as a slightly larger alternative to the also exemplary Delica 4. The Centofante uses even thinner blade stock and a hollow grind for superb slicing ability. There are a couple negatives worth mentioning. One is that the FRN is not textured so it can be slippery. The other is that the pivot is pinned and thus is not adjustable.
